5:47pm
issue of obama care. obama care was modeled on the health care initiative when he was the candidate and massachusetts. as we are still waiting. coming back to california to raise money to more for campaign efforts. coming up, on october 8th, president obama will be back in the bay area. he will be raising money and there he is. we are seeing mitt romney. coming down from the campaign jet. i do not know who that is in front of him. however, he is going to go into that secret service escort. i do not know who that is. and i wonder who that is? i cannot think
